As the world’s need for renewable energy has grown in recent years, the possibility of creating and collecting deep-sea wind energy has become a research hotspot. Floating wind turbines need damping devices to provide a stable working state and structural safety. Damping systems are often used for offshore floating constructions based on various operating principles and locations. Damping technology of various sorts is continually being researched for various demands, such as floating body size, form, and operating circumstances. To react to complex and changeable external circumstances, new perspectives on damping method categorization and selection are required. The conclusion was reached by classifying and comparing, tuned liquid column dampers are often employed in operational conditions. Dampers with power sources perform well in extreme conditions, such as Magnetorheological dampers. Rotational inertia dampers can greatly decrease torque but have yet to be widely employed in floating wind turbines. The purpose of this study is to review the latest improvements in offshore damping technology. The research results will provide characteristics and design references for future vibration damping of floating offshore wind turbines.
